is a major part of your resume. Leaving it blank is certainly the last thing you want to do. But what if your only work experience is from jobs that aren't relevant to the role you're applying for? Should you still include it? Work experience even in a completely different area can enhance your resume
if you present it the right way. This is true whether you are a new graduate just entering the workforce or a seasoned professional looking for a total career change. To begin with, look back at the job experience you do have. While your title and major functions may not relate to the job you want now, you likely still gained valuable and relevant skills that you could use in your desired role. Common examples of transferable skills include working with a team, customer service, social media management, organization and more. Tying these and similar attributes to the position you want tells employers you have thought deeply about what the job entails. When listing work experience in another area, follow the normal format for this section
. Include your job title, employer, and period of employment. Your bullet points, however, should focus mainly on relevant skills and functions."
